MILPITAS, CA / GREENVILLE, SC – September 8, 2016 – Quantros, Inc., the healthcare industry’s leading provider of enterprise safety risk management, quality management and reporting solutions, announces that it has executed a contract with the Colorado Business Group on Health to provide coalition members with access to Care Chex®, an information service of Quantros and regarded as the most comprehensive site for rating medical care. Differentiated from other publicly available quality ratings, CareChex® offers a composite evaluation of all components of medical quality, including process of care, outcomes of care, and patient experiences, and provides clinical, financial and patient satisfaction findings to consumers, providers and purchasers of U.S. medical care.
“We have been using this information with great impact on employers and purchasers of healthcare here in Colorado,” says Donna Marshall, executive director, Colorado Business Group on Health. “Transparency and quality outcomes are key ingredients for helping employers change the way they buy healthcare.”
With increased competition among hospitals and the growth of employer value-based purchasing, CareChex® answers the critical need for a broad range of quality indicators and objective – not subjective or reputation-based — data regarding quality of care. Employers are seeking more value for their healthcare dollars, and opportunities to reduce the upward cost spiral and improve employee health.
Shane Wolverton, senior vice president, Corporate Development, Quantros, says, “There is no better vote of confidence from the employer marketplace than the designation of CareChex® as the benchmark for assessing medical care. Its endorsement by such a high-profile and credible organization as the Colorado Business Group on Health further demonstrates the value of CareChex® and distinguishes this data from other publicly available quality ratings.”
